This film is a late Universal silent with the original Movietone score. Universal junked almost all of their silents as worthless, but this one was saved because it had an accompanying music track and was probably thought to be a sound film. Norman Kerry, in his least annoying role that I seen him play, is a wealthy newly-wed who is called off to war almost immediately after his marriage to sweet Marian Nixon. He had another female admirer, Pauline Stark, but he was not romantically interested in her. We next see him after the war as a drunken bum on the street. Ms. Starke, now a kept-woman, finds him and we discover that he deserted his regiment and everyone believes that he died in the war. She nurses him back to normal because she loves him. He's still in love with his wife though, who has remarried. And when the gangster who pays for Starke's apartment finds out all of this, he starts blackmailing Kerry. The rerecorded Movietone score was very nice and the photography was beautiful for this film.
